Amnesty International nagelt dictatuur in Turkije en het stilzwijgen van de EU aan de schandpaal
Edited: 201707251205
Dit is een samenvatting van de stellingname van Amnesty:

An attempted coup prompted a massive government crackdown on civil servants and civil society. Those accused of links to the Fethullah Gülen movement were the main target. Over 40,000 people were remanded in pre-trial detention during six months of emergency rule. There was evidence of torture of detainees in the wake of the coup attempt. Nearly 90,000 civil servants were dismissed; hundreds of media outlets and NGOs were closed down and journalists, activists and MPs were detained. Violations of human rights by security forces continued with impunity, especially in the predominantly Kurdish southeast of the country, where urban populations were held under 24-hour curfew. Up to half a million people were displaced in the country. The EU and Turkey agreed a “migration deal” to prevent irregular migration to the EU; this led to the return of hundreds of refugees and asylum-seekers and less criticism by EU bodies of Turkey’s human rights record.

China Is Still The World's Top Executioner - Islamic countries proportionally execute more people
Edited: 201604122118
According to a recent report from human rights group Amnesty International, 2015 saw a huge rise in the number of executions globally, the highest total since 1989. At least 1,634 people were executed worldwide with 90 percent of that number occurring in just three countries: Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

That's excluding China and North Korea where precise numbers are a state secret. However, Amnesty still believes China executes thousands every year, making it the world's top executioner. Despite the spike in executions, Amnesty reported that there is still some hope with four countries expunging the death penalty for good last year.

Commentaar LT: Het aantal executies moet natuurlijk gerelateerd worden aan het aantal inwoners. Dan komen we per miljoen inwoners aan volgend klassement: 1. Iran (10 executies/miljoen inwoners); 2. Saoedi Arabië (5); 3. Pakistan (2); 4. Irak (0.7); 5. China (0.6 maar onderschat).

Case Closed over de rapportering en de veroordeling in verkrachtingszaken in Denemarken, Finland, Noorwegen en Zweden. Daar werd een zeer laag aantal veroordelingen genoteerd, vooral wegens een gebrek aan bewijzen en het 'woord tegen woord'.

Apple, Microsoft allegedly use cobalt sourced from child labor in DR Congo – Amnesty
Edited: 201601191136


Amnesty believes the issue is that none of these companies can actually verify where the cobalt comes from. But “around half of all cobalt comes from the DRC, and no company can validly claim that they are unaware of the human rights and child labor abuses linked with mineral extraction in the region,” business and human rights researcher at Amnesty International, Mark Dummett, told the Guardian.
